The five Platonic Solids as well as 3 other related geometric shapes make a fun, educational and beautiful project 

These 8 nets are printed in colour on thick coloured card perfect for folding and holding their shapes.

The Platonic Solids are the only five symetrical shapes (in 3D) to be made just out ofa single polygon (such as a triangle, square or pentagon)
Carvings in wood and stone of the Platonic Solids have been found  belonging to many and varied cultures around the world  lasting back thousands of years before Plato became the first person known to write about all five of them around 2500 years ago

This pack not only includes mathematical information about each of the Platonic Solids but also their relationship to each other
